” Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;” Psalms 94:12
Don’t get weary when God punishes you for small things. That is not called punishment instead it is called as chastening.
Why God chasten You?
Ans: God Loves you so much that he doesn’t want you live in a sinful life or disorder life.
God’s expectation is you must live a righteous life. When we go in a way that displeases God, He chastise us in order to correct us.
What is law?
Ans: After Jesus came we are not under old testament law but new testament law.
According to Galatians 5:14 “For all the law is fulfilled in one word ; Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself “ . Therefore love replaces the law. We must overcome evil by good. When some one does bad to us, we must forgive them and love them. It is difficult to love our enemies but God gives us grace to do that. We need to sincerely pray for people who fights with us, persecutes us, accuses us falsely . When we respond to them as worldly people do, then God does not sit and watch simply . He corrects us, chastise us. He does it to escape us from eternal judgment. He does it so that our heart might change to be like His Heart!
